Anasta'sius Sinaita3. ANASTASIUS, a presbyter and monk of Mt. Sinai, called by later Greek writers "the New Moses" (Μωσῆς νέος), lived towards the end of 7th century, as is clear from the contents of his " Hodegus."
Confusion of various monks named AnastasiusThere is some doubt whether the two patriarchs of Antioch were ever monks of Sinai, and whether the application of the epithet " Sinaita" to them has not arisen from their being confounded with the third Anastasius.
Hodegus (ὁδηγὸς), or Guide, above mentioned, a work against the Acephali, and other heretics who recognized only one nature in the person of Christ, is a loose, illogical rhapsody, without any graces of style, and very inaccurate as to facts. This work is ascribed by Nicephorus and other writers to Anastasius I., patriarch of Antioch; but events are mentioned in it which occurred long after his death. Others have thought that he was the author of the work originally, but that it has been greatly interpolated. It was, however, most probably the production of the third Anastasius.
